Selection Criteria

SC 1.  Relevant qualifications and demonstrated capacity to provide tailored, individual high-level technical support to students and staff in a school setting.

SC 2. Demonstrated high-level written and verbal communication skills and high-level interpersonal skills including the capacity to develop constructive relationships with students, parents, colleagues and members of the broader community.

SC 3.  Demonstrated capacity to coach staff and students in the effective use of technologies to meet individual or organisational goals.

SC 4.  Demonstrated organisational and time management skills needed to implement high quality projects within budget, scope and deadlines; particularly when working on multiple concurrent projects.

SC 6. Demonstrated understanding of, and commitment to, the Child Safe Standards and Child Safety in a school setting.

Role

Attendance will be required for two half days (3.8 hours) and one full day per week, or, two full days per week.

Range 3 is distinguished by the introduction of management responsibility and accountability for the delivery of professional support services. The role will usually impact beyond the work area or professional field. It seeks to gain cooperation of other staff members or members of the school community to achieve specific objectives, such as in school administration, operations or educational programs.

Direction on targets and goals is provided but the position will have some degree of latitude in determining how they are achieved. This latitude will generally be limited by standard procedures and school policy.  Deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

The provision of business management responsibilities becomes a feature at range 3.  Management of staff to achieve the expected outcomes is a key responsibility.  Staff management issues will be resolved with minimal reference to senior management, although guidance will be required in more complex cases.  Senior management will be provided with timely reports and advice, although this will generally be confined to matters relating to the immediate work area, service provision or educational program and is unlikely to impact substantially on whole of school operations.

This is the minimum range for positions that carry a mandatory qualification requirement of not less than four years.  Professional student support positions become a feature at range 3 (e.g. therapists, psychologists) where standard professional services are delivered.  Professional support and guidance will be close at hand and deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor.  Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employee's position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Responsibilities

  • Develop and conduct training programs for computer systems users.
  • Modify and adapt accepted methods and guidelines and interpret and analyse complex data across several sub-disciplines.
  • Develop techniques and procedures that will affect work practices beyond the work place.
  • Manage a technical program with a broad scope across the school.

Location Profile

Golden Square Primary School (GSPS) 5531 was established on Laurel St in 1873 in response to a burgeoning local population and economy associated with the boom of the goldfields and the work and wealth they generated.  In 1956 Maple Street Primary School was established, a brisk walk just across the highway as an annex of GSPS, which then graduated to become its own school in the 1970s. The next significant phase began in 2009 when a merger of the two schools was initiated. This being in response to changing demographics and falling enrolments. The merger of the two schools offered an opportunity via a School Regeneration Project to build a new, contemporary design school for the Golden Square community.
From 2010 to 2012, the school operated as a single school on two campuses, one at Laurel St and the other at Maple St. At the beginning of 2013, students and staff from the Maple St campus were relocated onto the Laurel St campus under the banner of Working As One - at the same effectively providing a greenfield site for the construction of the new Golden Square Primary School on the Maple St campus.  On Tuesday June 9th, 2015, the school community conducted a symbolic walk from the Laurel St campus to the Maple St campus heralding the school’s first full day of operation in the new school building.
The 2022 school year has 16 generalist classes with the majority of these being composite. The 2022 Student Family Occupation & Employment index (SFOE) is 0.4506. This figure has decreased continuously over the last three years. Our community has a blend of culturally and economically diverse families presenting the school and students with a rich variety of learning opportunities.
The school will be entering the third year of its School Strategic Plan (SSP) and continues to maintain its focus on teaching and learning while at the same time ensuring that we fully support the health, wellbeing and engagement of every child so they can achieve academic excellence in an outstandingly inclusive environment. A copy of our plan can be found on our school website.
Our school motto of Working as One is crucial to us achieving the goals and targets outlined in our SSP as we implement consistent evidence-based practises throughout the school. Our newly developed mission and vision statements also provide a powerful insight into the commitment we are making to the children in our care and the work we are undertaking.
Mission: To engage all children in a high-quality education where they will thrive in their social, emotional and academic journey.
Vision: Our Golden Square Primary School community will work collaboratively in a safe, kind and respectful environment that inspires a passion and curiosity for learning.
